    I'm all for streaming. Phone addiction has massively impacted the experience.

    I know it was unintentional but I found this hugely ironic, considering how quite a sizeable chunk of streaming is done through mobile devices.
  • Home theatres can never replace a cinema experience, never.
    So true!

    If there's a time to get experimental now is that time. Hollywood is slowly moving to a concurrent release structure of theatres and streaming anyways. Now is the time for that leap. Offer this bad boy on streaming. Heck, charge us higher than movie ticket prices if they need to. I will pay up.

    No, that's a strange irony. Well spotted.

    Anyone who streams a film through a phone, I feel sorry for you.

    Quite right. Bond is event cinema in the truest sense. Screw streaming.

    Indeed.

    "Hey Dad, lets watch the new Bond on Friday!"
    "Sure thing! Where?"
    "The living room!"

    It doesn't quite have the same magic.

    I dunno. I get it for sure, but I grew up renting all the Bonds on VHS. At home, watching with my family and friends with all the popcorn and treats you could want. I never thought Bond had to be on the big screen to be enjoyed.

    I get that, too. But I feel different about new releases. As @RC7 put it, it's an event.

    Strange. I had the same exchange with my dad. But it was the Irishman. Both of us loved it, watching it in our living room. It wasn't any less of a experience. In fact, we paused the movie several times to get food and do our bodily necessities without having to worry about missing key scenes.

    This reminds me of people who prefer 'real' books over digital books because "that nostalgic bum smell of real books".

    Seems like an intangible feeling that has no real, tangible consequence. My son has been brought up on ebooks, he has no use of the bum smell of real books.

    I prefer my dedicated home theater with a Atmos setup and 4K projector, than going to the local movie theater. It's just more immersive, but to each his own.

    I think watching on the phone is fine if you had already seen a movie, but yes, I never want to experience my first time watching a film on the phone.

    I'm sure it's great to have that at your disposal (I'm working on building a screening room where I am, too!); but until such a setup is commonplace, the theatre remains the best option for Bond.

    I’m sure many of us did the same. My entire childhood was spent doing this but there’s nothing like the experience of a Bond on the big screen.

    There’s too much money in theatrical releases. Smaller films may move to a streaming model over the next few years but event films like Bond make too much money at the box office. Plus, more than any other film series, Bond films should be theater releases for as long as theaters are viable. Bond has been a theatrical experience for nearly 60 of the 132 years since the first film was made.

    Whereas I saw The Irishman twice in theatres, and the second time was with my Dad after it had been released on Netflix. I've watched it again since, but that second viewing was the one that was most absorbing. Screen size matters for certain films.

    Once again my hat is off to the powers that be that pulled the trigger first for NTTD. Cannot overstate the business savvy of making that move first.
  • At least moving to November will help in Oscar push, hopefully for acting as well as technical/musical categories. Dan Craig deserves an award for being best actor to play Bond.

    Movie-wise, November all of a sudden feels comfortable for us Bond fans....considering what happened with F&F & Mulan. Although, we hope that before November, life returns to normal....not just for the sake of seeing a Bond film though.

    Yes. In hindsight, being the first big film to delay, and nabbing November, looks very smart.

    It was hard to accept at first. Now, the delay looks very wise.

    I am thinking of doing the same thing for my father. But for me i still prefer theatres even if i would be the only guy in there lol.

    You know i was watching batman begins with my cousin a while back at home, he have a bad habit of constantly rewind a particular scene to look into little details not saying it is wrong but it kind of kills the mood and breaks the link while watching the film, when you are in a theatre film cannot stop, rewind, forward upuntil it finished. It's more natural that way. I understand why people prefer at home, if people were more civil most of us would be having a blast in theatres.

    I have fond memories of me going to my local theatre as a child watching Bond marathons. A couple of cheesy 70's/80's trailers, dim the light, the curtian going from 1.85.1 to 2.35.1 and then: the gunbarrel! But that was back in the day where other people were actually quiet. Now there are cellphones glaring and beeping, more people talking and whispering etc.

    Is there any PDF version of the NTTD Total Film article? I'd love to read it.

    As long as I can I will always go and see a new Bond film at the cinema so I‘ll buy 2 tickets at least to see it with 2 groups of people. And then I hope NTTD will still be available for purchase on 4K for Christmas 2020.

    I am all for streaming - but I still want to physically own certain Films (Connery + Craig Bond films, Blade Runner, Rear Window, To Catch A Thief ...). And nothing comes close to the Cinema when seeing such an event movie for the first time (for me).
  • QBranchQBranch Always have an escape plan. Mine is watching James Bond films.

    For me, half the fun of seeing a Bond film in cinemas is purchasing the popcorn and drink packaging!
